Marysville Road Race - No one can keep up with AA and Corbo

The weather held and the racers raced. MT Velo setup a wonderful course. The race support was excellent. Racers were checked on and cheered for constantly. Michelle, Rick, Karl, Scott, Frank, and Geoff did an awesome job. Loved it! If Velo hosts the race again this is a can't miss course.

With only six in the 1,2,3 field I knew it would be a difficult race. Before the big climb Corey launched a solo attack. Alan brought him back and continued to charge. He never looked back and took the KOM. Halp was second to the top, then Weston. AA time trialed to the win followed by Corey and then Weston.

Linsey took the ladies race with some excellent climbing. She finished second overall in her group on the road. The podium was rounded out by Campbell and Jen L. I can't remember who took the 4/5 race but Vernon was second and Iron Curtin was third. I'll get the winner's name ASAP. Photos and video by Geoff P.

Climbing up Flesher Pass is no joke. It looks like a great course for Saturday's race.

News and Notes

Spring time is buzzing.

I've had a frantic couple weeks so let me try to catch up with the Montana Scene.

Brian Frykman wins Belt and places 6th in the TT at Wenatchee (13th overall). Very impressive. Campbell returns to competition with a 6th place and hella primes in the Wenatchee crit. Steve Zellmer is on form. Winning Belt Masters and placing high at Wenatchee. AFrykman rides to 7th overall at Wenatchee. The first Montana Mountain Bike race was last weekend in Helena. I don't know who won, by I'd like to know??? Comment a top 5 if you got it.

Returning to riding and racing I'm excited for a few things in particular:

1. The road races coming up. Montana Cycling has setup a great two months. Marysville, Cow Country, GNC, Elkhorn/Bearmouth, and then finishing up with the biggest MT race Tour de Bozeman. Yes!

2. Tuesday Hell Ride. I've had a two year absence from the Missoula Hell Ride. Scheduling, mountain biking and life have prevented me from attending. Tam, Joey and company have done a great job keeping it going and I'm excited to get worked every Tuesday.

3. Mangy Crew. I miss the mangy crew and I can't wait to rip trail with the gang. A couple notes on the mangy crew.......everyone gets dropped, pecking order on the descent, and when you can turn the screw on Jensen/Doug/Toby/Phil you do it. Shout out to Joel Brown, summer of 2006 Lincoln Hills Climb.
